This week on Renoites, we are joined by Kristoffer Polaha, an actor originally from Reno who has appeared in recurring roles on many TV shows including Mad Men, Castle, Get Shorty, Backstrom, as well as starring in a number of movies for the Hallmark channel and appearing in major films like Wonder Woman 1984.
We talked about growing up in Reno and moving away and into a career in film, the differences between working in film and television, how religious faith informs the way we approach our work, the writing process for his new series of books, and the upcoming event this weekend in Reno for the Down Syndrome Network of Northern Nevada.
